instructions on how to walk from 40 berkeley hostel to berklee college of music, bc when i did the five week at age 17 i was a dumbass who didn't fill out the housing form, and instead lived in a hostel, guided to class mainly by a statue of harriet tubman

so yeah recorded it with a dump album in mind b/c very much not relevant anymore

harriet tubman looks at me
says take a right on newton st
go past the plot that sparrow park is built in
past prudential center and the hilton
and dunkin is the first thing that you’ll see

thank you tubman for your time
your contribution to this rhyme
you’re still a generous woman after death
you give me great advice without a single breath

who cares about street names
when harriet, you always stay the same

harriet tubman looks at me
says do things on whatever street
she’s vague and now i’m lost in a new city
it’s hot as hell and i have no ac, you see,
i found out some directions in a pharmacy

i just wish that harriet tubman had been there with me
she’s not my only friend yet but i’ve got like 3 and it wouldn’t hurt
(oh what a shame oh what a shame)

ms tubman’s just a statue
and i am oversaturating my experience so far
i’m carrying a backpack and a small guitar

so just give me a break
so harriet’s my muse
i promise you i’m not insane
i’m not insane lalalala
harriet harriet harriet harriet
harriet harriet harriet
harriet tubman
